    STAR Training Program Background

    STAR Training is a pilot program for Teaching Artists in central NY. STAR Training Teaching Artists are artist-educators looking to deepen their practice and enhance the marketability of their work through professional development, networking, and developing a Central NY Teaching Artist Sharing Network. On June 27-30 2016, 43 artists from 6 counties participated in professional development sessions in Rome and Syracuse that featured active learning focused on collaborative skills, arts partnership unit design, STEM and STEAM potentials, and more.

    Not sure what Teachings Artists are? "A teaching artist is a two-career professional: a working artist and a working educator.”
